Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem Active Skills refers to Character Progression by unlocking active abilities in Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem. Players are given the freedom to use any skills, however, skills are restricted to 3 attack types that correspond to the weapon you use. Melee, Ranged and Spell. This page covers a full list of all the Active Skills that are available in the game.

Acquiring Active Skills

Actives Skills can be acquired by using Enneracts. Ennearcts are a type of Item that can be consumed to learn new Active Skills. They can be acquired as loot from monsters or chests or purchased from the Archivist for gold. If the player already knows the active skill and consumes the Enneract, it will acquire Primordial Affinity Points instead. The amount of Affinity Points gained depends on how the Enneract was acquired. If it was looted it will provide 100 Primordial Affinity Points and if it was purcahsed it will only provide 10 Affinity Points.

Using Skills

Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem gives classless freedom to creating and optimizing your character, including the active skills that you use in battle. Players use multiple skills from 2 different attack types at the same time, giving you ultimate build freedom for battle - you can create a Range/Spell build,  a Melee/Spell, or a Melee/Range hybrid, and more.


Active Skills Proficiency

Skills can be leveled up by using them in battle. Skill usage improves both level and potency, as well as unlocking skill modifiers for the specific skill. Not only does the active skill increases its potency, but acquiring a skill modifier and attaching it will even change the skill's statistics and behavior whenever it is used. In addition, you can also level up your skills by using Primordial Affinity. To use Primordial Affinity,  look for Demetra who sells Enneract and use it to obtain PA. Enneract is obtained from looting defeated enemies and can also be purchased for 2000 coins per skill.
